 Alien Covenant Ridley Scott  

It's ALIEN director Ridley Scott's birthday, and 20th Century Fox is celebrating in style on Twitter, sharing a brand new image from the set of the upcoming prequel ALIEN: COVENANT which teases a link between it and the original film.

The pic shows Scott on the floor of a perfect recreation of the ship that started it all back in 1979, at the seat where a massive corpse was found by the crew of the starship Nostromo. How much will this play into the plot of the new movie? We'll just have to wait and see... Check out the picture below!

Directed by Ridley Scott from a screenplay by Michael Green, Jack Paglen, and John Logan, ALIEN: COVENANT is said to be set ten years after the events of PROMETHEUS and tells the following story:

Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Benjamin Rigby, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup, and Noomi Rapace star, with Michael Fassbender reprising the role of David. Fassbender will also be playing another android character named Walter in the film. Guy Pearce is also rumored to have joined the cast, reprising his PROMETHEUS role.

ALIEN: COVENANT touches down in theaters on the brand new, earlier date of May 19, 2017.
